Looking for Horror Anthology

I have an 18-19K horror story ... too big for a magazine to publish, I imagine ... anyone know of a horror anthology book accepting submissions?

Mundania Press is accepting shorts to include in anthologies. http://mundania.com/submissions.html

Mundania is a bit of a pain in the @ss. Their submission methods aren't the same two months in a row, but a market is a market.

Try Butcher's Shop Quartet 2 from cutting block press - they're looking for novellas for their anthology.

I also saw that Cutting Block Press is looking for submissions for its short story anthology, Horror Library: Volume II. I was thinking of submitting one of my stories, but I'm not sure whether or not I'll get in.

Anyone know what the competition is like, and what sort of standard they're looking at?
